The thing that amazes me most about Stevie Nicks’ song “Rhiannon” is that Stevie wrote it without any prior knowledge of the celtic goddess and her story. She just happened to come across the name Rhiannon in a novel she was reading to pass the time in an airport. She thought, “wow this is a beautiful name” and something powerful resonated deeply within her. Then she wrote the song…about a mystical woman, named Rhiannon, who was free, in control of her life, always lifting herself up…a healer…birds, horses, lovers. Only a little while after did she realize that she had written a song that fits perfectly with the goddess, Rhiannon. She literally FELT Rhiannon’s powers within her soul without actually knowing such powers existed. If that’s not magic y'all, I don’t know what is.
